    I guess the article is probably too long. Don't matter I'm probably too self aware to be schizoaffective so maybe I only think I relate but don't

    It sounds like executive functioning covers quite a number of different cognitive abilities. I wonder if it's a well-formulated construct.

    I wonder also whether the patients in the studies were on anti-psychotics*, because anti-psychotics can certainly impair functioning.

    But yeah, quite a long article.

    * I mean, they probably were, but I wonder how that was accounted for

    Schizophrenia appears to affect not only the prefrontal cortex but also the hippocampus which is part of the limbic system. The hippocampus is involved in the processing of short term to long term memory, among other applications.

    It is a very long article, but a very interesting one nonetheless. I can relate to aspects of this as well, though don't think I am schizophrenic (or at least I hope not). Dysfunction of the executive functions (or at least the dysfunction of very specific executive functions) is something I find relatable, although executive dysfunction as a whole can be found in various disorders. Nonetheless, it's interesting to read how and why it presents in schizophrenia.

    when i got my borderline diagnosis, I also got schitzoaffective. for no extra cost This article was indeed interesting and relatable. I tried calling them back to cancel, but apparently its like Columbia House. Once you've got it. You've got it till you kick it. -_-
